The 'Hot in Cleveland' star, fully clothed, swings on a wrecking ball in an attempt to attract people to her show 'Betty White's Off Their Rockers' which moves from NBC to Lifetime.
Betty White knows how to got people talking about her and her TV show. Soon after it was announced that Lifetime would bring "Betty White's Off Their Rockers" back for a third season after it ran for two seasons on NBC, the veteran comedienne releases a promo for the reality comedy series.
In the less-than-30-second clip, White says, "I got some ideas from recent pop culture events that really got the kids talking," before recreating a scene from Miley Cyrus' racy music video "Wrecking Ball". She crashes through a wall riding a wrecking ball, but unlike the young star who got naked in her clip, the 91-year-old is clothed in a white ensemble.
"Can someone bring me a sledgehammer?" she asks and then reappears holding the tool, giving it a sweet kiss. She also pokes fun at Cyrus' controversial MTV Video Music Award performance, saying, "How about a foam finger?"
White told Rolling Stone about filming the sledgehammer scene, "That sledgehammer was heavy as s**t, though. My arms were so sore the next day. And they didn't tell me it was painted, so I was licking it, and they were like, 'Don't lick that!' "
"Betty White's Off Their Rockers" was initially canceled by NBC in July, citing a drop-off in ratings and low DVR viewership. Lifetime then picks it up for a third season, which is expected to premiere in 2014.
